Exciting things happening in Mrs. Perry’s class!
Mrs. Perry’s students will be participating in some fun events. First up is a Math-A-Thon! Students will ask people to sponsor them as they complete math problems. All funds are to support St. Jude Children’s Hospital. A letter is going home today, March 9th with details. Permission slips are due by March 18th Math booklets will be sent home on March 21st. The collection envelope will be due by March 30th. No cash can be accepted. All checks are to be made payable to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
The next exciting project they are participating in is the BOOKPALS. BOOKPALS ( Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools) is a national program of the Screen Actors Guild Foundation where actors and performers volunteer their time to read aloud to children in public schools. BOOKPALS read for an hour each week to classes ( a half hour to each class) for a school year. We are lucky to have Frank Cacciola, and Amanda Martin from our local BOOKPAL program to work here at Tilton School.
Mrs. Perry’s class also recently enjoyed a field trip to the Ipswich Wildlife Sanctuary. Read below to see what Mrs. Perry had to say!
“We had a great time on our field trip to Ipswich River Sanctuary for Maple Sugaring. The students could actually see what we learned in the classroom in the environment from tree to syrup. We were able to have lunch in a beautiful barn, view the surroundings, walk the trials, take pictures with our IPads and learn the process of maple sugaring first hand. I was amazed with their knowledge that they learned in the classroom and was able to share with the guides during the tour. The guides for so impressed with the students’ knowledge, behavior, curiosity and accountable talk. They were all wonderful representatives of Tilton School and Tilton Tigers. Way to go! This field trip was sponsored by Target Education Foundation Grant program which we applied and received. We will be sharing with them our trip by develop a slide show with the pictures the students took with the IPads and we will be sharing that will you as well. Thank you for your support each and every day!”
PARCC Testing Calendar
PARCC testing is just around the corner. Hard copy calendars will be sent home shortly. In the meantime, please mark the dates on your calendars at home. It’ll be important that your child gets a good night’s sleep, eats a good breakfast either at home or here at school, and comes to school each day of testing on time with a positive attitude. We know our Tilton Tigers will give their best effort throughout testing! We Believe We Will Succeed!
Book Share event
Students in Mrs. Perry’s first grade class participated in a book share event. Students introduced themselves and gave a small preview of the book they had written. They then encouraged the invited guests to read their books and learn more about the topics they had written about. Guests were asked to leave a note about something they learned from reading the books written by each student. Mr. Fulgoni from Central Office was in attendance as well as several parents, grandparents, siblings, and Tilton Staff. Mr. Scully came by later to give praise to our young writers and spent time with students in their classroom. It was a wonderful event and we cannot wait to see what else our Tilton Tigers will do next. As our banners say “We Believe. We Will Succeed!”
